/PanARMENIAN.Net/ It is hard to expect new proposals during the
Washington walks over settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict,
Azeri FM Elmar Mammadyarov told journalists in Moscow, when commenting
on coming official visit of the Azeri President to the US.
“Positions of Azerbaijan that have been unchanged for 15 years, remain
the same. We have always come for settling the issue in compliance
with norms and principles of the international law, UN Security
Council and OSCE resolutions. Undoubtedly if we want to put an end
to the conflict really, so as it does not break out periodically, the
solution should be based on lawfulness exclusively,” the Minister said.
Mammadyarov also reported that during the coming visit of I. Aliyev to
the US and the meeting with US President George Bush a wide range of
issues of bilateral cooperation, as well as international and regional
matters will be discussed. In the Minister’s words, conflict settlement
in the Caucasus will be one of the key topics at the talks. Matters
of energy security, fight against terror, specifically Azerbaijan’s
participation in the anti-terror coalition will also be considered.
